Maine putting the finishing touches on this climb.

Description 

I didn't think this route looked like too much fun, which makes me wonder why I did it in the first place, but my motives are my own. Either way, I found it to be way more fun than it looked. Cool moves (easier if you are tall, and I am) out left below the roof, to the chains.

Location 

On the left side of the cliff, locate the line of bolts under the obvious roof.

Protection 

3 bolts to chains.

An intimidating looking climb. You look at it and think, "Does this thing go at 10c?" It does, but there is a spooky part. Just before the long lefthand reach to the jug by the chains, you're hanging off a very good incut crack where the face meets the overhang. Your knuckles are kind of jammed in the crack like a Chouinard hexcentric, and I had pronounced (but temporary) dents in them after the climb. I wondered a bit if I would lose a finger if I fell there. Creepy.
